Season 5 premiere- What did you think? (SPOILER ALERT)

Personally, I must say the episode was interesting- although not as interesting as previous ones.


I like the idea of Melinda and her baby being connected and him being an empath, but the five year jump made me wince.

What happened during those five years? We found out that Jim/Sam is now a doctor and is working in Grandview. We found out that Aiden's birthdays are 'cursed' as something always happens. But that's about it.


What I want to know is, what else happened during those five years?

For me, the pilot raised more questions about their past then it did about their son.


What did you think about the pilot?

Flashbacks are always a possibility.
I thought the premiere was quite good, not the best episode of the series but it was good.

I think it is a clever one. They are following 'Desperate Housewives' with this trick and are able to make it interesting by having flashbacks in the past 5 years.
Adults don’t change much in how they look in 5 years, maybe a gray hair added. So i thought that was believable enough. Also it was said (in script by Jim to Melinda) that 'she's been seeing more and more ghosts'. This might lead somewhere, so in that way things have changed.
Next to that i noticed some career changes to Jim being a doctor, Delia has a new job as Melinda asked her to watch her store for just this once... and her son Ned is now Eli's apprentice in a way. So this can lead to many new stories and these characters will play a larger role then they have done so far.
Its getting used to in the first couple of eps, but after that i believe it can get pretty interesting and with also rumors about 'Medium' and 'Ghost whisperer' merging for an episode or 2...
I cheer for season 5 and what’s yet to come!

To be completely honest, I was seriously dreading this 5 year jump. But- I have to admit, the show has been kicked off to a great start. And lets think rationally, if they had just not done all this crazy stuff in the last 2 seasons, the show would've become boring and repetitive, whilst now everything has gotten a lot more exciting and unpredictable. I think if the crew do their work properly, this could be a very interesting season.I HAVE wondered, what the heck has gone on in the last 5 years, but thats part of the mystery, they will tell us certain stuff, but come on, what else interesting couldve happened? So, the kid's grown up a little, Melinda and Jim have gone back into their old routines and the cycle has been going on.If the kid is going to have amazing powers it would've been extremely boring to just watch him grow- there's hardly any interesting drama they could do when there's a bundle of teething, pooping baby in the middle of it all. Personally, im starting to believe they did the right thing.
